Preakness Party ready to go!

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Before Kentucky Derby winner Justify enters the Starting Gate at Pimlico for the 143rd Preakness Stakes, the party will be ON at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono!

Doors open Saturday, Preakness Day at 9:30am, with the wagering windows open at 10:00am.  Post Time for Pimlico is 10:30am, and the Preakness Stakes is race 13 with an approximate Post Time of 6:45pm.

The patio and trackside bars will be ready with all kinds of ice-cold refreshments, including the famous Black-Eyed Susan in the souvenir glass.  Food will be available on the apron as well, and just in case showers fall, there is a big tent with TV monitors to keep the fans comfortable and dry.  Dress to impress and bring your friends to enjoy the second jewel of the Triple Crown!

After the Preakness is official the Downs has a massive live racing card set to go, including 3 divisions of the PA Sire Stakes for 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings, and two divisions of the Great Northeast Open Series.  There will be plenty of excitement on the track all night long, so fans are encouraged to stay and play well into the night.

Advance wagering on the Preakness is available on Friday, May 18th, Black-Eyed Susan Day, starting at 11:00am.  Post Time for Pimlico is 11:30am on Friday.
